The 2key protocol enables regular web browsers to join together, forming ad-hoc p2p networks. These networks act as multi-party state-networks that can run smart contracts off-chain. Our technology allows participants to use their browsers as nodes on the network and advance the contract’s state by sharing links.
2key’s innovations is protected in 3 patent at this moment. The technology fuse together the web of Information (HTTP) and the web of Value (Smart Contracts). We’re turning regular links into Smart Links, that is, links that contain a cryptographically proven assertion of both the code for turning a browser into a node in the 2key shard running the contract and the dynamically changing state of this contract.
Our novel cryptography allows browsers to validate smart links and generate smart links independently. This, in turn, enables the newly formed ad-hoc browser networks to act out smart-contracts without touching the 1st-layer blockchain for the majority of the contract's lifecycle.
Ultimately, the contract is persisted on the main blockchain - Ethereum (but is agnostic to any blockchain in later development), using novel cryptography and compression methods. 2key’s technology enables the contract’s state graph, with its many off-chain transactions, to be persisted on-chain with a single smart transaction.
